The Valiantettes

The girl singers, or Valiantettes, of Vince Vance & the Valiants, without exception, have always had names that begin with the letter “V.”  Currently they are introduced as The Vivacious, Voluptuous Vixens of Rock n’ Roll, the Valuable, yet Vulnerable, Valiantettes …Vixie, Violet and Velicity!  The first “t” is silent in the name Valiantette, so it is actually pronounced Val-yun-net. To learn more about the Valiantettes, check out their page on vincevance.com

The Guys

Except for Vince, none of the boys in Vince Vance & the Valiants have ever had a name that started with the letter “V”.  Our long standing band line-up includes: Ed Doc Loftus, musical director on keys and vocals; Shane McCauley AKA “Tall McCall,” the tallest drummer in the world; Tommy Tucker who not only sings, but also plays bass for his supper; and, on lead guitar, Mike Boyd, Country Music’s Golden Throat.  Vince features the greatest living saxophonist, Jimmy Vee, who simultaneously plays alto and tenor saxes... one upside-down.  His entourage includes colorful Roadies like “Mr. Mad Dog.”
